Generation Alpha

It's being some time since all of us had heard something about Generation X, or Generation Y or Gen Next and so on.

Reading an article about Generation Y made me think what these Generations are all about.

Checked up the ever reliable Wikipedia, which gave some interest definitions on these generations - including the ones from the past and the present.

Generation X, commonly abbreviated to Gen X, is the generation born after the baby boom ended, with earliest birth dates used by researchers ranging from 1961 to the latest 1981. 

Next came Generation Y.

Generation Y, also known as the Millennial Generation or Generation Next or Net Generation, describes the generation following Gen X. Commonly they are considered to be people born between the mid 1970s to the early 2000s.

Generation Z arrived after Gen Y.

Generation Z is one of the names used for the First World people born between the mid-1990s and the late 2000s.

And what do our innovative people do - when they see that Z is the last alphabet in English??

They come up with Generation Alpha - the set of people born in 2010 and beyond!!
